Photographing Heritage ...

The website is primarily devoted to two projects, both on historical buildings in China. The first is to photograph the many surviving foreign-built buildings in China's former treaty ports and leased territories; the second to photograph Hong Kong's 117 Declared Monuments.

There is also a collection of landscapes and, for the ultimate landscape, one of panoramas. Finally, there is a small collection of people I have met on my travels.

Please contact me should you wish to use any of these images. I am keen to support heritage projects, historical publications and anything involving education.

Recent: I am currently working with a publisher in Hong Kong to produce a book on my collection of Treaty Port images.  Although I have one major photographic expedition in late May, completing the book will be my priority throughout 2018 and early 2019.
